Matthews Lake Association invites all members to the Labor Day Weekend member meeting on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022 at 10:00 am.  

John and Kathe Nickleby are hosting at their home on Byrkit Road.

How Water-Friendly is your Shoreline?

Check out a new Shoreland Evaluation Tool that walks you through questions about the physical aspects of your lake or river property, as well as how you manage it. You can decide whether to register for an account or answer anonymously. 

Your final score will help you understand the property's management context - entry, restoration, enhancement or protection and discusses specific projects that could improve not only the score but help your lake or river, too!

On Thursday, June 16 John Nickleby, MLA Board President, and Dick Howard, MLA Vice President, hosted 10 leaders from the Wisconsin DNR, Wisconsin Extension Division, and Wisconsin Lakes Board to view all the work the MLA is doing to prevent AIS infestation and keep our lake quality at its best.

The next day, they were here for the NW Wisconsin Water Quality Conference in Spooner. These are the people who are responsible for funding the many activities we do at Matthews Lakes through Clean Boats, Clean Waters, Healthy Lakes and Rivers, and Surface Water grants. 

As we toured the lake via pontoon boats, they expressed their support and admiration for all we are doing on our shorelines and at the landing to prevent the spread of invasive species into our lake. Thanks to these leaders from Wisconsin for protecting our water quality.
